The Huntsville Police Department will be assessed this week by an accreditation program, and you’re invited to the public comment part Tuesday, Oct. 29.
CALEA is the “Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.” It requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services. Only five percent of law enforcement agencies in the country are accredited by CALEA.
The City says HPD was the first police department in Alabama to earn it. If you want to give your comment at a public information session, go the city hall on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.
